Half-Blood by Jennifer Armentrout {Stephanie’s Review}

Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout was picked as one of the COYER book club selections for September. It’s been on my TBR for awhile so it seemed like a good time to read it. I’ve never read an Armentrout novel before. I really struggled with Half-Blood in the beginning. It was a very typical chosen one trope with the chosen one saying and doing whatever […]

October 2020 Nostalgia Review Round Up {Stephanie’s Review}

It was an easy choice to pick up this book. The plot of Pleasure Unbound never stops. There is always something happening. It has also been a long time since I’ve read a proper romance and […]

Mother Knows Best by Serena Valentino {Stephanie’s Review}

I honestly didn’t love the plot of Mother Knows Best. I’ve never seen the movie Tangled so I didn’t really know what to expect. Perhaps not having seen Tangled before reading set […]
